Hi, sorry to ask another stupid question regarding this but I am a bit mystified at present.
I am suffering from the jumpy, kangaroo type gear changes in 1st and 2nd which is rather annoying, about the only annoying thing with my 3.0i.
So, this CDV thing; some have said just remove it completely and others have said they have a modified one...I would rather just take it out if that works just as well?!
I've spoken to a local mechanic (Jerry at Clayton Cars - Bristol BMW Indy) who was about the only garage I spoke to that knew what I was on about. He said they had done it on M cars and recommended replacing the hose with a braided one and bleeding the clutch system. He said he didn't think my Z4 would have a CDV though which was a bit worrying. And when I mentioned others have got a modified one he said that might be a good idea to do the same. The instructions on page 1 and 2 all seem quite confusing to me, discussions over whether to take this out, leave that bit in, replace the hose, bleed the system, what is the insert, if removed completely connection could be too tight etc etc.
So, what do I need to get him to do in order for:
No more crappy gear changes
Not spending a fortune
Not having a broken car
Thanks in anticapation
PS - He's also changing my front fog light (Thanks ranski Rich
) and said for both jobs would be an hour's labour, plus clutch bleed materials cost and potentially £25 for a braided hose...sound fair enough?
